Israel's Cabinet is ready to approve removal of three isolated Gaza Jewish settlements.
The settlements are Netzarim, southwest of Gaza City, Kfar Darom in central Gaza and Morag in the north, the officials said. However, it could still be decided to remove three small settlements in northern Gaza in the first stage.
